This is a Trading Card I did for White Wolf's Vampire of the Masquerade's "Keepers of the Tradition." I dressed her up as a Gothic Lolita. She's a vampire without the classic fangs. I would like to say I did it intentionally because I thought it was cliché, but in actuality, I plain forgot. The background was made by experimenting with different layers in Photoshop. I pasted in some realistic backgrounds I painted from other paintings, a scanned photo of a bumpy acrylic texture I made, and some color fill layers. I had each layer on a different setting, like multiply, color, overlay etc. It was fun and I really like the results. If you don't know what to paint in the background, I recommend experimenting with the layers.
